Love it. Any oil works best when used sparingly; massage a small amount in and then wipe of the excess. I have acne-prone combination skin, and I live in a polluted city, so my face was always breaking out. But I've been using jojoba oil for about two weeks along with sunscreen (Blue Lizard SPF 30 Suncream Sensitive...great stuff), and my skin has really cleared up. Jojoba oil is a match for human sebum, which means that it actually penetrates the skin, unlike products like Vaseline and even olive oil. And jojoba oil doesn't have any health risks, so it's safe to use everywhere. Why pay more for expensive moisturizers/bath oils/makeup removers when this works even better?
I sure have tried this for quite some time. However it seems to have given me drier skin than normal. When I wake up, I have facial dandruff. It's very unsightly and it doesn't seem to address my oily skin. I feel vitamin e oil works better. However the longstanding caveat of what works for others doesn't mean it will work for you comes to mind when I use this. Too bad, because I wanted to love this, like all people really say. I have had an acne problem and oily skin problem and this somewhat abated the acne issue, but more build up of oil and congestion ensued. Was this the case for anyone else?
Also I would always look greasy, it never quite sunk in for me.
I love this. I have oily skin and this has helped my skin be LESS oily! I use it after I wash my face at night, and again after I wash in the morning, under my make-up. Been using it for about two months. love it. : )
UPDATE: this was breaking me out. I no longer use it on my face, only once in a while in my bath for my body.
LOVE this. i leave it in my shower and rub it all over once i turn off water and am about to jump out. replaces any lotion anyday. i also use this during the day on my face as an intense moisturizer (for my dry days) and leaves no residue/smell! bought it at trader joes.
I have been using this jojoba oil for 5 years and it works great. Perfect for acne prone or sensitive skin. But I notice as I get older I need more moisture. I'm still looking for a good moisturiser to go with the jojoba oil.
Also, I'd love to hear from any MUAers who have tried using jojoba oil as a cleanser and alternative to the DHC cleansing oil.
I love this product. I use it as a makeup remover and skin moisturizer. It's odorless and non greasy. So it doesn't clash with my perfume. I have eczema during the winter and this product works. I have not gotten eczema this winter since I started using this. It's a bit pricey $14 for a small little bottle, but I found it at www.vitacost.com for $7 Can't beat that right!
i have oily/combo/acne prone skin, and i use this as a pre-cleanse twice a day. i basically just rub it all over my face to break up oil and dirt and/or make-up, wait a few minutes, then wipe it off with a warm wash cloth. i then wash my face like normal. just adding this step has decreased breakouts, oiliness, and the occasional dryness from my toner. i also use a few drops of tea tree oil mixed with a little bit of water on a cotton pad as a toner, which helps prevent breakouts too. *just make sure you wash your hands well before applying this, as it's a carrier oil!* i'm sure there are many ways you can use this effectively, with or without adding other oils (tea tree, lavender, etc.).
I have combination skin so I avoid using this product too frequently. When my skin is dull and prone to drying/breaking out I will reach for jojoba to moisturize or use as a gentle make-up remover [depending on how dry/oil it is] so not to aggravate it.
The bottle is a pain and leaks, So - for that. At £8 for a 60ml bottle of oil which usually spills, I've had to be tight with it :(
love it. soaks into my face. makes my hair soft with just a drop after I towel dry.
Absolutely the best moisturizer I've used! Keeps my combo skin hydrated and oil-free & I use it as a makeup remover so its my night cream too. I'm on my second bottle & will keep on using this for as long as it makes my skin look good. It's cheap, too, only $7.oo a bottle. Don't be afraid to use this because it's an oil; it doesn't make you break out. On the contrary, it soothes your skin and keeps it clear.
